The 1.5-day Innovation Engineering Leadership Retreat is a popular option for leadership teams.  Leaders leave the Retreat with an understanding of leadership systems and tools that enable innovation by everyone, everywhere, every day, resulting in increased innovation speed (up to 6X) and decreased risk (30 to 80%).  It's not training - it’s an experience.

What makes Innovation Engineering different is that it’s clear that the methods and tools taught are crafted by people who’ve actually done it. It’s clear, it’s documented, it’s reliable, it works.
— Mike Sirois, Chief Innovation Office High Liner Foods
It gives you a completely different perspective on leading and managing businesses. Businesses have to be fast moving. Have to adapt rapidly. This gives you the tools to really think in different and dynamic ways...It gives you a completely wholistic view of how to really develop and change your business in a way that’s proven.
